GEEK OUT.


Just about peed my pants.

Brad and I watched it and made simultaneous nerd noises
when Loki popped out at the end.

"You must be truly desperate to come to me for help."

Many people think I'm crazy, but out of all the Marvel awesomeness
that was released these past years, Thor is probably my favorite

(Besides the Avengers, of course.  But duh, that's a given.)

I don't know why so many people didn't love it.  But I so did.
To be honest, at first I was SO not excited for it.
I mean, how were they supposed to execute a rainbow bridge?
I wasn't sure how they'd do it, but I didn't think it possible.
I was also entirely anti-Natalie-Portman, to be honest.
(Probably from Star Wars.  Oh my crap, so stupid.  She "died of a
broken heart"?  Really, people?  Millions of years in the future, and she
DIED OF A BROKEN HEART?  Sorry, I'm over it.  I swear.)

And yet... they PULLED IT OFF.
Natalie Portman was awesome, a rainbow bridge somehow
made sense, made a guy with long hair a hottie, and Loki,
a horned-semi-loser-in-a-bad-costume to me since childhood,
became the freakin' greatest bad guy in the world.

I love, love, loved Thor.

Soon after it came out on DVD, we couldn't afford a hard copy yet
so we got it from Redbox for date night and we watched it.
No joke, once it was over I asked Brad if we could watch it again.
I ended up watching it three times in the twenty-four hour rental period.

I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL OCTOBER.
